Humbling Oneself and Walking in Humility

THE NEED TO HUMBLE MYSELF

He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to humble yourself to walk with your God. Mic 6.8

Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, SHOWING ALL HUMILITY TO ALL MEN. Titus 3.1 3.2

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you. 1Pe 5.6 5.7

Likewise, you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 1Pe 5.5

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. James 4.10

Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

I must humble myself as the little child who came when Jesus called in order to be great in the Kingdom of Heaven. Mt 18.4

If my people, who are called by my Name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2Chr 7.14

For everyone who exalts himself will be abased, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

We should humble ourselves before God and let Him search our hearts and confess our sins, rather than exalting ourselves in the presence of God. Lk 18.14

When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom. Pr 11.2

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. Pr 16.18 16.19

He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him; he is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him. Jn 7.18

At any kind of social gathering where you are invited take the lowest place. This is one way to humble yourself.

Humility recognises that “I need God”.

Recognise when people follow that it is only because they see that God is with me. Keep the attitude, “I need God”.
